Journeys A Pathway to Healing Training

  • Oakland Centre 2255 West Centre Avenue Portage, MI, 49024 United States (map)

Grief is especially difficult for children.  A child may not demonstrate their grief in ways that adults readily recognize.  When a child mourns in silence they may well be grieving alone. 
Journeys is a program of Hospice Care of Southwest Michigan which offers a safe environment for young people and their parents to share the challenges associated with losing someone they love.  The program is free and open to all. 

Volunteers, who want to help grieving children, are needed to facilitate the peer support groups and to serve as greeters and helpers on the nights families gather.

Journeys volunteers must first complete the HCSWMI Volunteer training (see calendar).   The Journeys program staff then offer this program specific training to introduce the skills needed to facilitate peer support groups with children and adults. 

If you are interested in joining the agency as a volunteer apply today.  Contact the volunteer department at 269-345-0273 or at volunteer.mail@hospiceswmi.org for more information
